About the Author
Praise For The Pesthouse…
“A suspenseful road novel. . . . Crace's mordant humor shines darkly. . . .a meditation on some of the deepest questions about America.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review“A cracking adventure story. . . . Crace pulls off a transcendent ending that offers a biting commentary on the ongoing American experiment.” —Entertainment Weekly“Throughout [The Pesthouse], a delicate, touching shy romance blossoms….Crace is a writer about plain things, but he writes about them in a way that's both startling and subtle, a shimmering surface over still depths.” —Washington Post Book World“Graceful and haunting. . . . Crace is the coldest of writers, and the tenderest.” —New York Times“A writer of hallucinatory skill.” —John Updike
